The Cycle of Violence

R’ Yakov Horowitz posted a poignant cartoon a few days ago expressing the theory of abuse that “hurt people hurt people.” (See the cartoon and accompanying article here.)  In response, I shared with him a related image that I feel is very powerful.  It sparked some responses, so I felt it was a good time to post it here.  There are actually three related images, all of which originated at http://www.savethechildren.mx/ (though I am not clear in what context). They do a phenomenal job of illustrating the cycle of abuse – be it physical, verbal, or sexual. (Click on the image to see the full-size picture in great detail.)
